When we are threatened by global pandemics and by climate change, very many people fear we are facing an existential crisis. John Hands˜s new book shows why these fears are unfounded and why we should be optimistic about our future. It evaluates current major predictions for our future in three categories: (1) Extinction by natural disasters. (2) Survival by colonising space or by extending individual healthspans and achieving immortality. (3) Transformation by uploading individual minds to computers or holograms. Hands argues that they have a negligible probability of being realized. The unique forecast in this book projects into the future the distinct pattern in the scientific evidence of an accelerating cosmic evolutionary process over some 15 billion years up to the present.
